Officers are appealing for information about a New Year’s Day altercation in which a man brandished a knife at Highbury and Islington station.

British Transport Police was called and a 51-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon.
He has since been released under investigation. Officers are now trying to find out what happened in the run-up to the incident.
A transport police spokesperson said: “Knife crime and violence such as this will never be tolerated on the rail network. Officers are working hard to establish the full circumstances leading to this incident occurring.”
